The family law language project

In this episode, Tamsin speaks to Emma Nash from the Family Law Language Project. From their website, “the language of law needs to be understood by those who need to engage with it. This is so important when it comes to family law as the implications of misuse of language can translate into genuine suffering for children and families. We also need to re-think how we practically apply family law. We need to move away from language that promotes conflict and leads to Court proceedings, towards a language that puts the welfare of children first.

The Family Law Language Project has a simple mission: to help make family law easier to understand, less hostile and more accessible for everyone. We intend to do this by improving the understanding and use of language.

Emma Nash is a solicitor and Head of the Family Department at City law firm Fletcher Day. In addition to her family law practice, Emma writes and speaks extensively on family law issues. Emma is also the founder of The Family Law Language Project, an initiative that launched in November 2021 with the aim of making family law more accessible and reducing conflict by improving the understanding and use of language.
